What’s This All About?

BES, as a Long-Term Ecological Research project, is funded in six year increments. BES II actually lasted for seven years due to a change in the scheduling of the grant cycle by the National Science Foundation (NSF). We are obliged to produce a formal report to NSF that summarizes what we have done and what its broader impacts are. This report is technical, encyclopedic, and detailed, and we will make it available when it is finished. However, NSF also requires us to prepare a “plain language” summary which is posted on the Research.Gov website. For the interest of the BES community, I’m posting that “Project Outcomes” report here.
